Hello friends, I hope you are all well!
I wanted share a review of a new product I have added to my skincare routine. The Botanics facial oil made up of mainly natural ingredients. I picked up this product at Boots for 9.99.
Why I decided to buy:
I am mid twenties now and getting to the age where I really need to take care of my skin and work on the anti aging routine! I was on the look out for a new night time moisturizer and knew I wanted to get something that would be really moisturizing to help prevent wrinkles, This facial oil contains rosehip and sweet almond oil, both are fantastic for anti aging and found in many anti wrinkle creams, I also like to use as many 'natural' products as possible which drew me towards this facial oil.
I have tried facial oil before (vitamin E oil from The Body Shop) which did leave my skin lovely and soft but broke me out...which is a big no no for me. That being said I did really want to try out another facial oil. I was really hoping this facial oil would give better all over results.
How to use:
I use 2 drops each night which I rub over my face starting with the cheeks, this is enough to cover my face nicely. It does feel very oily (obviously haha) to start with and takes a while to sink in, I actually quite like this as I feel it's super moisturizing. I find by the morning it has all sunk in and left my skin with a lovely glow.
On the description it does say this oil can be used morning and night. However I really would not recommend using this during the day. I haven't tried it but I can't imagine makeup would go well over it at all, it's a bit too oily for the daytime in my opinion!
To clarify I use this at night instead of a moisturizer / serum.
My overall thoughts:
Firstly lets start with the price...I think 9.99 is a decent price for the product. Although it may seem like a lot for a small bottle from the drugstore, you only need to use a tiny amount so the product will last a long time.
In my opinion this is a really great facial oil for night time. I am continuing to use it on a daily basis and feel it has definitely helped to give my skin a youthful glow. I feel like it's a intense moisturizer and serum in one which is great. I also have small patches of eczema around my eyes which the oil helps keep under control. I wouldn't say it makes a drastic change but it really does do the job for me. In terms of anti aging I do think it has help slightly, my skin feels more youthful and glowing. No further wrinkle lines have appeared yet!
I naturally have combination skin, oily T-Zone and dry patches around my eyes and chin. I know oily skinned people can tend to stay clear of oils but I do not think this has made me any oilier during the day. If anything it has helped! So don't be put off if you have oily skin.
Overall it's moisturizing, full of good natural ingredients and doesn't break me out. What more could you ask for!
